Daniel Briere is a healthy scratch from the Canadiens lineup and will be replaced by Brandon Prust for tonights Game 5 against the Boston Bruins. Briere has one goal and three assists in eight playoff games this spring while playing on the fourth line with Travis Moen and Dale Weise. Prust has one assist in six games but has sat out the last two games of this series. You can listen to the game on TSN Radio 690 Montreal at 7pm et. Boston earned a 1-0 overtime victory in Thursdays Game 4 battle in Montreal, with Matt Fraser, a call-up from the American Hockey League, providing the only goal of the important contest. Playing in his first-ever playoff game after being recalled earlier on Thursday from the Providence Bruins, Fraser scored 1:19 into overtime to even this best-of-seven series at two games apiece. Price turned away 34 shots in the loss for the Canadiens. This was the 10th time a playoff game between these long-time rivals had ended 1-0, with the last coming on April 15, 2008 when the Canadiens took Game 4 in an eventual seven-game victory in the quarterfinals. However, this was just the second overtime game to end 1-0, as the only other time was on April 16, 1953 when Elmer Latch scored the Cup-clinching goal for the Canadiens to finish off a four-game sweep. "Both teams battled and I was happy by the effort of our team," said Montreal head coach Michel Therrien. "Both goalies were phenomenal, both teams were well prepared. We lost the battle in front of the net, obviously, on the winning goal. But Im pleased with our teams effort. When its overtime, it could go either way." A combined 65 shots through the first 60 minutes failed to find the back of the net but Bostons third of the extra session made it in. On the goal, Johnny Boychuk let fly with a big shot that Carey Price made the save on and the puck bounced behind the net. It rolled to the front and Carl Soderberg got a weak backhand off that Price also stopped, but Fraser was there for a backhand of his own that went in to end the game. "The puck was bobbing out in front," said Fraser. "I tried to sneak it out and knocked it in. Its pretty exciting. I hardly slept today, being called up, but this is just one game and we just tied the series. Now we go back to Boston and continue." According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Fraser is only the sixth NHL player in the past 75 years to score his first career playoff goal in a 1-0 overtime game. He is the second this postseason as Minnesotas Mikael Granlund lifted his team to a 1-0 OT victory over Colorado in the opening round. Fraser, who scored an OT winner for Providence in this seasons Calder Cup playoffs, also became the first player in history to score overtime playoff goals in the AHL and NHL during the same season. Bostons Tuukka Rask stopped 33 shots for his second shutout of the playoffs and fifth of his postseason career. "I saw the puck well tonight," said Rask. "They had a couple of shots that were screens. But, for the most part, we did a good job tonight letting me see the puck more. We didnt give them a lot. We managed the puck very well at times." The Bruins lost the opener of this series in overtime before rallying late for a win in Game 2. Montreal then posted a 4-2 win in Tuesdays Game 3 meeting at the Bell Centre before dropping its second home game of the series in heartbreaking fashion on Thursday. This series is the 34th playoff meeting between these Original Six rivals. The Canadiens are 24-9 in the previous 33 series, but the Bruins have won the last two (2008, 2011). Danny Jersey .

Moments after scoring and setting off another wild celebration at Minsk arena, Platt leapt into the arms of Belarusian captain Alexei Kalyuzhny.SAN FRANCISCO - The reliable southpaw is getting the ball for another important Game 1.Left-hander Madison Bumgarner will pitch the World Series opener for the San Francisco Giants at Kansas City on Tuesday.Manager Bruce Bochy made the expected announcement Saturday as his team worked out under sunny skies, one day before travelling. Bumgarner, an 18-game winner, was voted NL Championship Series MVP as the Giants beat the St. Louis Cardinals in five games.Despite MadBums high innings, Bochy wasnt worried about the 18-game winner. Bumgarner didnt get a decision in the pennant clincher against the Cardinals on Thursday night.I think I wouldve insulted him if I checked with him, Bochy said. Hes a big, strong guy. His last game I thought he had great stuff. Its not like hes thrown 120-130 pitches. His workload has been under control.Bochy is keeping his rotation the same as the first two rounds of the post-season. Right-hander Jake Peavy will pitch Game 2 on Wednesday, followed by 39-year-old right-hander Tim Hudson in his World Series debut Thursday at AT&T Park and then righty Ryan Vogelsong.Yusmeiro Petit, who has twice provided a huge lift as a long man, will stay in his role as Bochy stuck with Vogelsong in the rotation.Petit in the job hes done in that role that weve had him in, you go back to Washington and without Petit its hard to say what would have happened, Bochy said. In St. Louis he went out there and gave us three big innings.dddddddddddd Hes a great swingman. Vogey, he threw a great game against Washington. He had a little bit of a hiccup but no, I didnt think about changing.Unused two-time NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum will make the roster. Bochy didnt expect to make any changes from the 25 players used in the NLCS.Lincecum pitched the Game 5 World Series clincher at Texas in 2010, then held a key role as a reliever in the 2012 championship run. Lincecum pitched his second no-hitter June 25 against San Diego but hasnt pitched since Sept. 28.Ive been thinking about Timmy, trust me, Bochy said. Timmys done a lot for us, and we know that.Lincecum was undergoing treatment for a a problem that developed overnight.Timmys got a stiff neck right now but we talked about him throwing to hitters today, Bochy said. Hell be back tomorrow, but hes still on the roster. I dont think its serious. ... Im pretty sure at some point hell be in the game.Bochy didnt announce a designated hitter, though Michael Morse is the obvious candidate. He has been unable to play left field and hasnt started since late August because of an oblique injury, but hit a tying pinch homer in the 6-3 Game 5 NLCS win.I havent got the order set, DH, Bochy said. Right now we dont have any plans to change our roster. Now that doesnt mean we cant change our mind as we look at this further.
